Lilly's Wedding Quilt by Kelly Long

From the back cover: "Local Amish schoolteacher Lilly Lapp is tired of weddings, afraid of horses, and immersed in caring for her depressed mother. But when Jacob Wyse, a handsome horse breeder from her small community rescues her from a dangerous accident, Lilly discovers a renewed interest in life and the possibility of love. Yet Jacob has lost the one true love of his life to another man and doesn't care to expose himself to the vulnerabilities of loving again. God works to bring this unlikely pair into a sweet romance to produce a pattern of faith, which leads to the creation and comfort of Lilly's Wedding Quilt."
What a wonderfully written book! This is the second book in the "A Patch of Heaven" series. After reading book 1 "Sarah's Garden" I was looking forward to the second installment. I was so pleased to have the opportunity to read and review this book and it did not dissappoint. In this book we follow Jacob Wyse and Lilly Lapp. Lilly is a school teacher who has admired Jacob since they were kids. Jacob "the horsewhisperer" lost his first love Sarah to another man. Can Jacob get past his love for Sarah and find room in his heart for another? Can Lilly learn to trust Jacob and put her guard down. Through this well written book you see how God has worked in both of their lives to bring them together. I won't say more because I don't want to ruin the story for anyone. I highly recommend this one, it is a must read! I am now anxiously awaiting another book in this series!
